Before starting, preheat the broiler to high. Wash and dry all produce. Rinse capers, then pat dry with paper towels. Zest, then juice half the lemon (whole lemon for 4 ppl). Cut any remaining lemon into wedges. Halve tomatoes. Pat salmon dry with paper towels, then season with half the Italian Seasoning, salt and pepper.
Cut ciabatta into 1/2-inch pieces. Whisk together garlic salt, pepper and 1 tbsp oil (dbl for 4 ppl) in a large bowl. Add ciabatta, then stir to coat. Arrange ciabatta on an unlined baking sheet in an single layer. Broil in the middle of the oven, stirring halfway through, until lightly golden, 4-5 min. (TIP: Keep an eye on them so they don't burn!)
Meanwhile, whisk together capers, remaining Italian Seasoning, 1 tsp lemon zest, 1 tsp sugar, 1 tbsp lemon juice and 2 tbsp oil (dbl all for 4 ppl) in a medium bowl. Season with salt and pepper. Add onions. Toss to coat. Set aside.
Heat a large non-stick pan over medium heat. When hot, add 1/2 tbsp oil (dbl for 4 ppl), then salmon, skin-side down. Pan-fry until golden-brown and cooked through, 3-4 min per side.**
Add croutons, tomatoes and arugula and spinach mix to the same large bowl (from step 2). Drizzle half the dressing over top, then toss to coat.
Divide salad between plates, then top with salmon. Drizzle with remaining dressing and squeeze a lemon wedge over top, if desired.
